Well it wasn’t a bad evening,
Even if I didn’t meet anyone I really wanted to see again.
The band was fun.
That last guy told me,
“You’re a good dancer.
“I’ll bet you’re good in bed.”
I could have said, “I’m the best.”
What would he have said to that?
But he didn’t arouse even my curiosity.
I could have suggested a smoother pick-up line,
and see how he responded to a critique.
I could have said, “Sure, let’s fuck. I’ve got nothing else on tonight.”
How would he have reacted to an unenthusiastic consent?
I could have told him, “You’ll never know.”
But I don’t enjoy being hostile.
But all I said was,
“Thank you. Good night.”
